Register now for Cornerstone Credit Union League’s 2019 Growth & Engagement Conference (formerly the Marketing & Business Development Conference), Nov. 4 – 6, in Allen, Texas.

By attending, you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Innovate your marketing and business development;
  • Network with the best and the brightest in credit union marketing and business development;
  • Discover the hottest trends, new ideas, and fresh perspectives from industry experts, as well as your peers; and
  • Identify products at the vendor fair that could make your job easier.

Jan HargraveDid you know that 90% of face-to-face communication is nonverbal, making the body’s silent messages often more revealing than the spoken word? In the opening session “Actions Speak Louder than Words: Understanding Nonverbal Communication,” body language expert Jan Hargrave will help you improve your communication skills by teaching you to:

  • Master the art of making a positive first impression;
  • Deliver effective gestures for successful interactions;
  • Develop nonverbal competencies to communicate your ideas in a positive and professional manner;
  • Detect the gestures and "micro-expressions" of deception and secretiveness;
  • Understand actions that help establish rapport and enhance your leadership abilities; and
  • Identify disconnection gestures and recognize verbal objections before they are expressed.

For more information and to register.
